After watching Garden Answer on YouTube for many seasons, Laura finally got me interested in these PW plants. They were never something that previously drew my eye or impressed me until NOW. I'm extremely happy with my purchase and planted them fall of 2022 in a flower bed facing north east. They performed beautifully and had color on the leaves through most of winter. I just recently trimmed off the old foliage to let the plant focus its energy on growing new leaves and they are already putting on vibrant fresh growth. I will be adding more of these and trying to figure out new ways to design a layout in the flower bed to incorporate them. I'm looking forward to trying other varieties too.

Very disappointed with this .I bought this with another proven winners heuchra called "Toffee Tart" I placed them in a dappled sun spot where i already had Ferns, Tiarella, Astillbe going on. I bought it a gallon size and it has been shrinking ever since i planted it. I have checked for all possible issues and there is absolutely nothing that should go wrong and still its shrinking in size. Very expensive plant to be non performing.momofcute2, Michigan, United States, 1 year ago
I bought a small size of this plant for a container. It is absolutely beautiful. It is thriving in its container which is on the north side of our house...shady in the AM with some afternoon sun. love the contrast it makes against the lighter colored plants it is sitting with. I have since moved some of the container plants under our trees in our western exposure front yard. They are doing incredibly well. Love the variety, texture and interest they give to the gardenRebecca Spence, North Carolina, United States, 1 year ago
I have this one in the shade and love the color. It just kind of gives off its own light. It is surrounded by darker colored heuchera that bring out its colorWendy, Ontario, Canada, 3 years ago
